About nine years ago I was sound asleep in my house. Well actually it was my mother's house but when she passed away ten years ago the house went to me. I did miss my mom a lot. When my older brother and my dad were alive and things would go wrong and money was tight, my mother was always the one that kept the family together and kept the family strong. She was indeed the monarch of our family. Since my mom has passed on, it is just my sister and I left to carry on.
As I stated, I was alone in the house and asleep. I had the strangest dream. In my dream I could see my mother's face with a worried, urgent look on it and she was calling me and saying ... You need to wake up! You are in danger and if you don't wake up, you will die and it is not your time yet however. your life will end if you do not wake up NOW!
With that last warning I did indeed wake up and I sat straight up in bed. I realized at once it was just a dream and I wondered why I would dream such a thing. Just as I was ready to lay back down and attempt to go back to sleep. I started to smell smoke and I jumped out of bed and look all around but everything seemed to be OK. At that point I opened the door to the cellar. As soon as I opened the cellar door, I realized that there was a fire down in the basement. I immediately ran into the kitchen and called 911 and then grabbed some towels from the hallway and made them wet and went down the steps into the cellar to see if I could get any of the fire out until the firefighters arrived.
To make a long story short, The firefighters were able to put the fire out and I did have to have the basement redone due to fire, water and, smoke damage It was all taken care of within two months and it turned out that the fire was caused by some electrical malfunction down in the basement.
Since that night I have always wondered was my dream just a dream or was my mother trying to alert me of impending danger. My older sister and I have talked and she said she had a dream one night of our mother warning her over and over that she needed to go see a doctor. When my sister did go see her doctor, she discovered she had the very beginning stages of colon cancer and we thank God and mom that she was able to get that taken care of.
I guess our mother is still watching over her children even though she has passed on. We Love and Miss you Mom!
